Tech Dome Penang is situated in the Geodesic Dome of Komtar, right in the centre of Georgetown. It has over 120 interactive scientific and technology exhibits across 40,000 sq ft of floor space. There are galleries on Information Technology, Life Tech, Robotics, Optics, Electromagnetism, Forces & Motion, Children’s Exploration Zone, Penang Transformation Story and PIXO Observatory. All of these exhibits are carefully put together to provide an immersive and experiential presentation on the wonders of science and technology. For a one of a kind experience, try the signature G-Drop where visitors are hoisted up and then slide down the gigantic slide.
There will be a lot of walking from one exhibit to another. In order to experience all the exhibits, dressing up in comfort by wearing suitable sports gear and a pair of comfortable shoes will do a lot of help.
Tech Dome Penang comes complete with an indoor carpark, nursing room for mothers, a food court called Hungry Atom: The Food Lab, 2 function rooms: Baryon and Meson, Graviton Lab for participants of various programmes, The Sail - an outdoor demo area and The Terrace for talks and performances.
